uncovered by an fbi investigation into a series of e-mails sent by his biographer, paula broadwell, who was accused of sending harassing e-mails to another woman. that sparks an investigation that revealed her secret relationship with petraeus. but after looking at a recent speech she gave on the death of four americans in libya, people started wondering whether she and petraeus had shared any classified intel and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal.

surfaced that you -- that somehow you got information and you passed it on to the fbi director. what happened? >> well, you know, i was contacted by an individual in the fbi who i have never met, i didn't know. he offered information to me that gave me pause and a cause for alarm. i had no way to corroborate the information. and certainly, the information to me... gave rise to the possibility that there was a national security issues that perhaps our cia director was vulnerable. but i couldn't corroborate or substantiate the information that was given to me. we were about 10 days or a few weeks out before the election. and i didn't want to politicize it, i wanted to make sure that national security wasn't at risk. so i turned to the person and the entity that i felt best equipped to deal with that information, to get to the bottom of it. and this was the fbi director and his office, that we know has an obligation to make sure that our national security is the priority. and the fbi's also obligated to apprise congress if there is a need for or an ongoing investigation or if there is a

about the cia director scandal until last week. especially because we are told that eric holder and fbi director robert mueller began looking into the affair last summer. we are told that mr. eric holder was told in september about it. then they spend weeks on an investigation that went so far as to open the cia director's e-mail, all without ever even mentioning it to the white house. joining me now is the former u.s. attorney general under george w. bush. there is an article in time magazine talking about you. about how you were the attorney general back in 2007. he wrote a memo that would have dissuaded or prohibited any contact between fbi justice and the white house when there is an ongoing criminal probe. you say that's nonsense. that's not what your mama said. >> that's correct. in fairness, "time" magazine, they got it right. but what the memo was meant to do and what it did was to stop contact in criminal investigation, ordinary investigation and restricted. it is permitted to have contact. megyn: so when there is an fbi investigation of this sort going on, saying mr. president
of national intelligence, the acting director of the cia, senior deputy at the fbi, senior undersecretary of the state department as well as the head of the national terrorism center. and the active director of the cia will tell members of congress that the annex did not call for military assistance to help them on the day of the attack in benghazi, jenna. jenna: there is so much happening cat reurpbgs the foc catherine, the focus today, what are you happening. >> reporter: fox news was told the focus breaks down into a handful of areas. what was the intelligence picture leading up to the benghazi attack. between june and september there were at least three attacks on benghazi on western or diplomatic interests. at what point did the u.s. intelligence community assessment show that benghazi was a terrorist attack, and how did that conflict with the obama administration's statement that it was a spontaneous demonstration in response to this anti-islam video. and also director petraeus, at what point did he understand whether he was the focus of an fbi investigation and whether this in anyw
